arrow BFF (Be a Friend First) Tips & Facts Girl Scouts of the USA 2012

BFF (Be a Friend First) a title selected by middle school girls, was created to help them develop healthy relationship skills, understand relational aggression, and learn about conflict resolution and bullying prevention. Based on Girl Scouts of the USA’s aMAZE! Journey leadership curriculum, the activities and content in BFF are correlated to national and state standards, particularly character education, service learning, and written communication skills. Girls begin BFF by understanding how to develop healthy friendships. They then learn to deal with relational aggression and bullying in their own relationships. Finally, they lead with friendship in their schools and communities by taking action to prevent bully behavior.
BFF is tailored to girls’ specific interests and needs. It is based on extensive research on girls’ relationships and bullying behavior, conducted by the Girl Scout Research Institute, as well as focus groups with middle school girls from across the country. BFF was developed to address girl-bullying specifically, and during the years when it is most prevalent. Facilitated by trained community volunteers in middle schools, faith or community-based settings, BFF is designed to create opportunities for girls to share their experiences, gain skills for developing meaningful friendships through games and role plays, and practice resolving conflict in healthy ways. Importantly, girls will work on a project of their own design to address bullying in their schools or larger communities. This is a key part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience—taking action to make the world a better place—an empowering experience for girls on this or any issue!
